CPU Pentium II 266 MHz RAM 192 Hard Disk 5400 rpm moderate - fast
VIA 400 MHz RAm 256 MB HDD 5400 rpm moderate - fast
Pentium III 600 MHz 512 MB 4500 rpm - fast

* The hardware requirements of LXDE are similiar to Windows 98
(Maybe a little bit higher). An old Pentium II CPU is enough.
* After X11 and LXDE are started, the total memory usage is about
45 MB on i386 machines. (This value may be higher or lower according to
different system configurations.)
* Though LXDE itself doesn't require better hardware, other
applications under X do need it. For example, Firefox and OpenOffice.org
2 are quite memory-hungry. So it's recommended that you have a RAM of
more than 128 MB.
The ultimate fast and robust file manager. It provides tabbed file
browsing and desktop icons with low system resource usage.
Feature-rich yet user-friendly desktop panel providing most crucial
functions you expect from a desktop panel. Configuration is done through
a graphic user interface.
Standard-compliant X11 session manager with shutdown/reboot/suspend
supports via HAL and gdm (LXSession Lite is a stripped-down lightweight
version without X11 session management support, and it's more stable).
LXAppearance is a new feature-rich GTK+ theme switcher able to
change GTK+ themes, icon themes, and fonts used by applications.
LXLauncher enables the desktop to have topic oriented desktops.
Lightweight, standard-compliant, and highly-configurable window
manager (adapted by LXDE. We suggest using this as default window
manager.). This can be replaced by any other window manager like icewm,
fluxbox, metacity, ...etc.
A very simple, fast, and lightweight image viewer featuring
Lightweight and simple text editor adapted by LXDE. (We suggest
using this as default text editor.).
LXDE Common is the default settings configuration file for
integrating the different components of LXDE. LXDE Common manages the
system behavior and functions to integrate icons and artwork.
Desktop-independent VTE-based terminal emulator for LXDE without
any unnecessary dependency (All instances share the same process to
reduce memory usage).
Lightweight, fast, and desktop-independent gtk+-based file archiver
(adapted by LXDE. We suggest using this as as default archiver).
Monitor configuring tool. You can plug in another screen into LXDE
or choose to use a big screen projector. Local screen and extenal screen
can be used at the same time. LXRandR configures the screen solution
Lightweight network connection manager. LXNM is a helper daemon for
LXDE supporting wireless connections (Linux-only).
Graphic User Interface for netcat. Netcat provides system functions
as a computer networking utility for reading from and writing to network
connections on either TCP or UDP.
It needs less CPU and performs extremely well with reasonable memory.
It runs well even on older computers produced in 1999.
It requires less energy to perform tasks to other systems on the
It includes an internationalized and polished user interface
powered by GTK+ 2.
Easy to use
It provides a choice to use the simple eeepc like Launcher user
interface or a MS Windows like application panel.
It is easy to customize the look and feel of LXDE.
It offers additional features like tabbed file browsing or menu run
dialogs known from operating systems like Mac OS. Icons of new
applications show up after install on desktop.
Every component can be used independently from other components of
LXDE offering the flexibility to use LXDE parts with different Unix like
It follows standards as specified by freedesktop.org.
